Pouring Paint

 In About Alameda Arts, Student Art, Summer Camp

We like messy art.  Well, mostly Kate likes messy art and I go along with it.  Kate having seen the work of Holton Rower was the inspiration here.  Paint is poured cup after cup onto a wooden structure on a YouTube video, Tall Painting.  We tried to recreate the experience, first the children constructed a tower made of cardboard boxes and masking tape.  We set it up next to a picnic table so they could reach the top and put down a big tarp under it all.  They lined up and poured their cups of paint on our tall boxes.  It was messy, some kids poured and others just watched.
